We are reviewing Nvidia's mini-performance giant Zotac GeForce GTX 1050 Ti OC grafic card.
The Zotac GeForce GTX 1050 Ti OC graphics card is manufactured with 14nm production technology. In the heart of the card with 4GB GDDR5 memory and 128-bit memory bus; While the 768 Cuda core works with a minimum operating frequency of 1392 MHz and a maximum operating frequency of 1506 MHz, the 75W draws attention with its low power consumption. Let's first take a look at the card's gpu-z table and its technical specs;

At first glance, the Zotac GeForce GTX 1050 Ti OC graphics card is notable for its mini size and lack of any power input. The Zotac 1050 Ti OC offers excellent results for Full HD and 2K resolutions, as well as for players with low power consumption of 75 watts, better performance for current games without changing systems, and a superb solution for Mini-ITX system users.
The card that supports Nvidia G-Sync as well as DirectX 12, unfortunately, does not have virtual reality support. If you are looking for a card for virtual reality on NVIDIA, you should at least buy a GTX 1060.
The back of the Zotac GeForce GTX 1050 Ti OC does not have any backplate. There is no need anyway. Because there is no memory or electronic component on the back that needs cooling. It operates between 25 C and 53 C temperature at the moment of operation while it is operating very quietly with the small 2 fan.
We can say that the Zotac GeForce GTX 1050 Ti OC graphics card occupies 1.5 slots in our cache. On the back side there is 1 DisplayPort (1.4), 1 HDMI (2.0b) and 1 deDVI Video Output Socket.
Let's take a look at the synthetic testing and game testing of the Zotac GeForce GTX 1050 Ti OC graphics card. But first let's talk about our test system;

With the Zotac GeForce GTX 1050 Ti OC graphics card, we see that the 3DMark Benchmark FireStrike has 6872 points in Full HD resolutions.
The Zotac GeForce GTX 1050 Ti OC graphics card can show the difference in the entry level cards in the FutureMark 3D Mark tests. In the Futuremark test, we see that the 1050Ti succesfull than nvidia gtx 1050 over %18 in the 3d Mark 11 test, 22% in the FireStrike test and 20% in the Sky Diver test.
The Zotac GeForce GTX 1050 Ti OC graphics card in the full HD resolution with HITMAN, BattleField 1 and Division games, the card we worked on, the record was quite good results. The performance it exhibits as a 1050Ti card that does not require an additional power connection is pretty good for a mid / entry card.
The Zotac GeForce GTX 1050 Ti OC graphic card has a stylish look, primarily with its 2-fan design. It performs quite well in its class without the need for additional power connections. The Zotac GeForce GTX 1050 Ti OC graphic card superb solution for the Mini-ITX end users with high-end users or entry level users. The card is not overheating. In summary; The Zotac GeForce GTX 1050 Ti OC is all about the features of the graphics card, and when we evaluate it in its class, it deserves the 8DPC Golden Award.
